|Location||From Glen Innes northeastward across New England to Drake, Tenterfield, and near Wallangarra. Western hordes, including those of the upper Severn River, Beardy River, Stonehenge, and Bolivia, are best considered a separate tribe called Ngarabal (which see). The true Jukambal live east of a line joining Glen Innes and Tenterfield. Ridley found people speaking the language of this tribe on the Macintyre River in 1855, perhaps members of the Kwiambal tribe. Most of the -bal tribes share very similar languages.|
